Subject: top 10
Also any show with this taper Barry in the subject means it is a super clear sound. Check out his Hartford 4 17 1982 for another crisp quality.
Love the Let it Grow China Rider combo, only played 3 other times in this format. 1 being from Seattle Washington 6 13 1980 2nd set, Rainbow Theater 3 21 1981 1st set closer. and of course this one closes out the 1st set also. reason stated is because when others throw little tid bits out there I love to research them these days because I just love this band. They are my life then and now are still a huge part of my every morning. Nothing like waking up to Sports pages . comm and the boys playing whatever show I chose in the background.
This is 5 star show and recording in my book. Thank you all for all the work you put into make our listening pleasure so enjoyable.
Sorry for the rant good coffee this morning.......

The second set opens with a Shakedown Street that is replete with a fabulous jam that finds interesting side streets for the band to explore. The Sailor>Saint is picture perfect. This song duo had it's heyday in the early 80's and they always bring such vivid imagery to mind. That is another hallmark of the Grateful Dead for me: Their songs always seem to play out with distinct images in my head. I know of no other band that has this effect to the extent that the Dead do. The Wheel spins out of Saint and we are treated to a very cool jam towards the end. There is some great interplay between Jerry and Brent and then the song folds into Never Trust A Woman. Interesting placement but it works. Another jam ensues out of Never Trust A Woman and it is basically Jerry soloing over the drums and then Brent soloing over the drums. The theme of NTAW can be heard throughout which adds to the linear nature of the second set. A Spanish Jam out of Space is a cool treat and the Truckin' is rocking with Bobby's flubbed lyrics and all. The band settles down into Wharf Rat and we are treated once again to one of my favorites. Sugar Mags and U.S. Blues close out the show in typical Dead fashion.
Subject: I have to disagree
Subject: Long Beach Classic Show
Love the China > Rider first set closer, as well as the interwoven jams in the middle of the second set.
This show rivals Long Beach 12/13/80 in overall quality, which is really saying something since that was a sick show. Must have been awesome to attend!!
Subject: Bolero Jam?
Subject: Ron Ellner's Master
Wonderful playing; so much desire and connectiveness and interplay. A few moments when the wheels slip on track, but overall just dripping w/energy and wonder.
